Thank You Rep. Joe Wilson For Doing The Right Thing At The Right Time

"Totally disrespectful. No place for it in that setting or any other and he should apologize immediately." was the disgraceful and traitorous comment made by John McCain regarding Rep. Joe Wilson's stand for We the People in calling Obama a liar. I say what John McCain and the Republican leadership did, in demanding he apologize, was disrespectful to the American people and inappropriate for a Republican representative. If what Rep. Joe Wilson said wasn't true, that Obama was lying, then why would the Senate now need to close the loophole for illegal immigrants in the healthcare bill? And, if what he said was true then that was exactly the setting he should have challenged Obama in.

When Rep. Joe Wilson shouted "You lie" he fulfilled his duty and his oath of office: "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God."

Anyone who regularly reads this blog knows where I stand and I say to the rest of America that more of our representatives need to stand up and call these liberals out for the liars they are; and yes, even in the middle of an untruthfully engineered speech. This is no time to concern ourselves with what liberals and moderates consider appropriate or respectful; this is not time to be tolerant.

There is a time to reap and there is a time to sow; now is the time to sow the seeds of Conservatism and patriotism; before the liberals reap the socialist harvest of their radical mutiny and insubordination to the Constitution of this great Republic. Congress is separate, but equal to the presidency, and the supreme court, but keeps playing errand-boy to the presidency; they need to fufill their purpose and represent the people.

Rep. Joe Wilson did what every one of our Republican leaders should have done. It is the duty of every elected official to reveal and eradicate all threats to our nation's sovereignty and existence as it was founded. Rep. Joe Wilson was the only one who had the courage and sound judgment to say liar when Obama stood before the nation and spewed his venomous lies and hate. Rep. Joe Wilson is one of the few with the qualifications and the forbearance to be a leader of the Republican Party in the midst of a political war for the very soul and perpetuation of America.

Thank you Rep. Joe Wilson from the bottom of my American heart, and from my children and grandchildren not yet born, for being a sentry, a beacon of truth in the face of treachery from both parties. Thank you for putting our nation, your state, and the American heritage before the defilement of power, greed, tolerance, and socialism.

Michele Bachmann On Geraldo Tonight

Michele Bachmann will appear tonight (Saturday, September 12, 2009) on Fox News' Geraldo at Large at 10:00 pm ET/9:00 pm CT. She will be discussing the healthcare town halls and national tea parties and how America is standing up to Washington and saying no more.

Rubio for Senate - "Fundamentals"

With the Party establishment backing so many RINO's for Senate seats in states like Illinois and Florida we need to get behind good conservatives and defeat these establishment RINO's in the primaries.

Glenn Beck - The 9-12 Project

Don't forget to watch Glenn Beck on Fox New Channel. The 9-12 Project has begun so it is not too late to catch it. The program goes from 12 pm to 2 pm Central. If you love your freedom, your life, your liberty, your Republic you need to watch this program today. Glenn has praised the Conservatives who have taken on the big government mentality of DC no matter who have advocated it; including Sarah Palin.

I know many of us have football conflicts with this viewing, but sacrifices must be made if we are going to reign in this out-of-control government that has grown expenentially under the Obama administration.

Don't forget to involve your families. Conservatism and patriotism begins in the home. Our children look to us for guidance.

Our children wanted to share with you drawings they have created for this occassion. Cross posted at The Palination

Sarah Palin: Remembering 9/11: We Are Americans

It has been eight years since the United States suffered the worst attack on our soil since Pearl Harbor. As we look back, we should take stock of what has transpired since then. We have sent our nation's soldiers into battlefields far from home to defend us. These brave men and women live in treacherous conditions, facing improvised roadside bombs, suicide bombers and other attacks. Yet they fight on in their mission to defend the United States and all of us without complaint.

Our all-volunteer service is made up of Americans of all races, creeds, and economic backgrounds. These soldiers are on the front lines of this battle, and there are others in the fight as well. We must continue to give our utmost support to the United States military and those that support their efforts. In light of this, I have added my name to a letter sent to President Obama urging him to remain committed to prosecuting the War on Terror in Afghanistan. Never have so few defended the liberty of so many. We must continue to support their mission because they will continue to fight for us.

President Reagan ended his first inaugural with this story:

Under one such marker lies a young man-Martin Treptow-who left his job in a small town barber shop in 1917 to go to France with the famed Rainbow Division. There, on the western front, he was killed trying to carry a message between battalions under heavy artillery fire. We are told that on his body was found a diary. On the flyleaf under the heading, "My Pledge," he had written these words: "America must win this war. Therefore, I will work, I will save, I will sacrifice, I will endure, I will fight cheerfully and do my utmost, as if the issue of the whole struggle depended on me alone." The crisis we are facing today does not require of us the kind of sacrifice that Martin Treptow and so many thousands of others were called upon to make. It does require, however, our best effort, and our willingness to believe in ourselves and to believe in our capacity to perform great deeds; to believe that together, with God's help, we can and will resolve the problems which now confront us. And, after all, why shouldn't we believe that? We are Americans. God bless you, and thank you.

As we look back to that tragic day eight years ago we take pride in the fact that we came together as a nation in the days, months and years that followed. We rose to the challenge that fateful day and we still can. And why shouldn't we believe that? We are Americans.

I thank all our servicemen and women, in and out of uniform, for keeping us safe over the last eight years in the face of enormous odds.

Please thank a veteran today. They certainly do not look for those thanks, but they have more than earned it.

- Sarah Palin

Never Forget

Never forget that we are at war. Not a war of our choosing, but one we must win. And, let's keep the families of all the innocent victims on 9-11 in our prayers, especially today.

Cantor Remembers 9/11 Victims on 8th Anniversary of Terrorist Attacks

“Today, on the eighth anniversary of 9/11, we mourn the nearly 3,000 innocent victims who lost their lives in the worst terrorist attack ever on U.S. soil. We stand with the families who lost loved ones, and take inspiration from the heroic actions and courage of the first responders. That tragic day changed the course of history. From that day forward, Americans resolved that the danger posed by radical Islamist terrorists would not go unchecked.

“Today the struggle against extremist terrorists goes on in Afghanistan. We face a terrorist enemy who still plots to attack our homeland and our people. Although we have made progress through the sacrifices of our brave men and women in the field, the enemy is not yet defeated in a war we simply cannot afford to lose. We owe an immeasurable debt to our troops and their families for their sacrifices. I also applaud the President for his continued support for the War in Afghanistan and for his commitment to provide the men and women in uniform, and the generals on the battlefields, the necessary resources to achieve victory.”


Chuck DeVore: 9/11, Flight 93, and a free people

Today, eight years ago, acts of unspeakable evil were committed on American soil. Al-Qaeda terrorists killed almost 3,000 people.

Whether the effort to preserve our liberties, secure our Constitution, and protect our people is called the “Global War on Terror” or “Overseas Contingency Operations,” the result of failure is the same: more terror and death. [

Nancy Pelosi Threatens Extortion

Nancy Pelosi has threatened filing a resolution of disapproval against Rep. Joe Wilson if he does not apologize directly before Congress. This threat of negative action in the absence of an another apology is extortion. I say Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Obama owes the entire Republic an apology and should voluntarily step down for their lies, their traitorous behavior and agendas, and their anti-American rhetoric or WE THE PEOPLE should hold them accountable and impeach them. What say you?

Marco Rubio Comments on 9/11 Anniversary

Miami, FL – U.S. Senate candidate and former Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio today issued the following statement on the anniversary of the September 11th attacks:

“On this eighth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, we remember the heroes who perished that day and grieve with the loved ones they left behind. Their memory endures in a nation blessed to have known such extraordinary souls.

“We commemorate the heroism of first responders and passengers who helped save lives in the Twin Towers, the Pentagon and on the ground. Like so many generations of Americans before them, these selfless individuals valiantly rose to the occasion when our nation needed them most. In doing so, they inspired the world.

“We honor the work of the brave men and women who have served in our armed forces, intelligence community, law enforcement and public safety agencies. Together, they have labored courageously and often anonymously to prevent another similar tragedy on U.S. soil. Especially today, they deserve our respect, admiration and appreciation for all they have done and continue to do to keep us safe.

“The world remains a dangerous place amidst the persistent threat of violent jihadists. As we remember 9/11, we should find a renewed and reinvigorated sense of purpose for the greatest of all causes – protecting America and our way of life.”

9/11 - The Day America Stood Still

We all remember what we were doing that awful morning terror rained down on our Republic; the recollections are countless. We all remember the feeling of that knife of horror and shock through our hearts as we watched helplessly while those terrible events unfolded, one by one. We all remember the sickening feeling in our very souls as we watched fellow Americans jump to escape the certainty of death they faced from the heartless flames. We held our breath and America stood still.

None of us will forget the brave heroes who selflessly gave their lives and those who answered the call of help with no thought of their own safety. None of us will forget the numbness we fell into when our emotions were all spent. None of us escaped feeling the loss of impregnable security we all thought we had or the sadness we felt for those who lost loved ones.

The most chilling thing of all isn't that it happened anymore; it is that so many don't care anymore. Even more abominable are those who use the memory of this day to camouflage their own inadequacies; personal and political. Liberals in Washington and all over this Republic will be making their speeches, holding their vigils, and expressing pseudo sentiments for a multitude of rationales. They will call for bi-partisanship, tolerance, quietude, and reverence for those who lost their lives that fateful day. The exquisitely choreographed pageants they will put on are sure to please any materialistic, comfort loving civilian.

As these performances manifest themselves across this land I have to wonder why the facade is so important to them when everyone knows the sentiment is not sincere, but a means to an end. Don't let your natural tendency to see the good in everyone deceive you; their agenda is their motivation not their sorrow for those who were lost.

Then there are the intrepid RINO's who believe they champion the desires of the new Republican Party to be united with their liberal brethren in a collaboration of illogicality. Their expectation will be our submission to their ambitions out of our sense of honor and what is appropriate. They will shamelessly flaunt their motivations because our leadership has proven that they will turn the other cheek and abuse their own before holding liberals accountable for their own misdeeds. They will execute a hatchet job on what they consider the weaker members in a vain attempt to win liberal approval.

So why then are they our leadership? Why do we allow them to be our voice when they have muzzled us and taken it upon themselves to decide what it is we want. Why have we made them our representatives when they do not represent who we are? The audacity of their assumption that they know better than ourselves what best for us should be our motivation to finally rid ourselves of these political marionettes and vote in leadership with integrity and honor to be our mouthpiece in our own government.

Today is new dawn for Conservatism; the beginning of a journey back to our foundations. A journey we will all take together because we cannot make it alone. We owe it to all of those who have been martyred and given their lives for this Republic to ensure that generations not yet born will know the original and authentic American dream of freedom and liberty. Today is a day of celebration, our mourning is over.

We will always remember and always honor those who died on this day and because their memory is more significant than some liberal's political aspirations. We will pay homage to their sacrifice by transcending what is appropriate or politically correct by doing what is right, what is truly patriotic, and what is genuinely American; fighting for freedom and subduing and insurgent government using the most foreboding weapon of all; our ballots and the ballot box.

Always remember the terror Al-Qaeda bestowed upon us. Never forget those who lost their lives on this day and pray to God that we are victorious in saving this Republic for our children and theirs. God bless and comfort you all.

The Failure Of The Republican Leadership

I have not had a whole lot of energy or time for posting lately, but this subject has to be addressed. I know DR already posted on it and I agree with what he as written, but I wanted to put in my two cents also.

The Republican leadership has failed you, the American people, the Constitution, and the foundation of this Republic. They had no right and were completely wrong in demanding that Rep. Joe Wilson apologize to the White House. They gave credence to the socialist agenda when they did. The Republican Party has climbed into bed with socialists and liberals the moment they spinelessly caved to the White House. Talk about a disgusting display and rollover exposing a yellow-under-belly.

Their duty and responsibility is to keep the liberals accountable to the people and in-line with the Constitution. The slithering, snaking liberal agenda has seeped under the skin of the government effecting even the Republican leadership who have obviously become more obsessed with maintaining power than serving the will of the people.

Obama has been lying to the American people all along, he lied in his speech to Congress, he called us (his political opponents) liars and fear mongers, and he expected that the status quo be kept and the Conservative tongue be muted and the Republican leadership threw up the white flag without even thinking of fighting back.

This is why all RINO's must be be replaced. They must all be voted out. We do not owe anything to the liberals or the White House, they were called out for what they are and they should be removed from power for what they are. We do not ever need acceptance or permission from a socialist to be free, to live the American dream, or for liberty; yesterday, today, or tomorrow.

Obama healthcare is wrong, it is dead, and the only reform we need it tort reform and the end of state insurance monopolies. So Obama, you are a liar, you always have been, you always will be, and we will not follow an inadequate leader over the cliff of enslavement.

Catholic League News Release


Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on President Obama’s speech last night on health care reform:

Yesterday, I said the president would not mention abortion in his speech. I was wrong about that. But I was right to say, “The rational thing to do would be to drop abortion from the health care bills and support conscience rights for health care workers.” Obama did nothing of the sort. Indeed, his one sentence denial that his health care proposals would result in federal funding of abortion is simply not true.

Even the
New York Times, which issued a strong editorial endorsing his speech, said in a news analysis that his claim that there is no federal funding for abortion “is not so clear-cut.” In practice, the Times
said, “the public and private money would all go into the same pot, and the source of money for any single procedure is largely a technicality.”

More pointedly, if there is no federal funding for abortion in these plans, then why have there been several attempts to bar such funding? Tell that to Rep. Bart Stupak, Rep. Joe Pitts, Rep. Eric Cantor, Rep. Sam Johnson, Sen. Orrin Hatch and Sen. Mike Enzi. Why would they seek to ban something that doesn’t exist? Just as revealing, why did Obama’s friends defeat every one of these amendments?

President Obama is playing a shell game. He defended the public option plan last night, and under that plan, the person in charge of deciding whether abortion coverage will be mandated is his Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius. This is the same woman who befriended George Tiller, the infamous abortionist who specialized in killing babies 80-percent born. Is there anyone who doubts what her decision will be? If President Bush appointed a secretary of education who was pro-school vouchers, and an education plan allowed the secretary to decide whether to fund them, would anyone conclude that federal dollars for vouchers were not in the plan?

Being wrong is one thing. Being deceitful is quite another.

Grow A Backbone - We Have A Presidency, Not A Dictatorship (Yet)

I have been shocked as I have gone around the Internet looking at other Conservative blogs and most of them are agreeing with the White House and the MSM about how inappropriate it was for Obama to be called a liar by Rep. Joe Wilson. Obama was addressing a Joint Session of Congress and the American people and he demeaned and disgraced the presidency with his outright lies and distortions.

Do you think Thomas Jefferson or James Madison would have sat in that chamber and allowed Obama to disgrace our Republic? No, they would have spoken up; and how do we know? Look at all the heated debates our founding fathers had amongst themselves. In my opinion, these were truly blessed men with amazing intellects and they fought for what they believed in even when it meant disagreeing with each other.

What our side refuses to acknowledge is this is a war of ideas for our Republic. If Obama and the Dems get their way the Republic will cease to exist. We must fight back with ideas and the truth. If they lie we must immediately call them on it. They have no problem slandering and destroying anyone who gets in their way. All I am asking for is that we fight back. We are the ones who have truth on our side. We need not back down or cower in the shadows like our Republican leadership.

We will only remove them from office and retake the White House and Congress if we realize the war, for what it is, and fight for our Republic. This is not a war of violence, it is a war of education and honor. Can we get the truth out before Obama's propaganda leads too many voters astray? I think we can and will despite our weak leadership who seems more interested in getting invited to exclusive DC cocktail parties then doing the job we sent them there to do.

If you believe Rep. Joe Wilson was correct here is where you can go to donate to his re-election campaign. I just received an email from RedState encouraging us all to donate.

Gov. Sarah Palin: Response to the President's Health Care Speech

After all the rhetoric is put aside, one principle ran through President Obama’s speech tonight: that increased government involvement in health care can solve its problems.

Many Americans fundamentally disagree with this idea. We know from long experience that the creation of a massive new bureaucracy will not provide us with “more stability and security,” but just the opposite. It's hard to believe the President when he says that this time he and his team of bureaucrats have finally figured out how to do things right if only we’ll take them at their word.

Our objections to the Democrats’ health care proposals are not mere “bickering” or “games.” They are not an attempt to “score short term political points.” And it’s hard to listen to the President lecture us not to use “scare tactics” when in the next breath he says that “more will die” if his proposals do not pass.

Congressman Stands Up To Obama And Calls Him A Liar

This video is absolutely priceless and I will cherish it for the rest of my life.

Unfortunately, the Republican Party has already made Congressman Joe Wilson apologize. I say apologize for what? He spoke truth to power; as the Democrats like to say. Obama had just called our side liars in the most partisan speech I have ever seen a president deliver before Congress. That fact seems to be overlooked in all the coverage I have seen. The Congressman is correct; Obama did lie and he continues to lie.

Sarah Palin: Response to the White House

Response to the White House

I'm pleased that the White House is finally responding to Republican health care ideas instead of pretending they don't exist.[1] But in doing so President Obama should follow his own sound advice and avoid making "wild misrepresentations".[2] Medicare vouchers would give everyone on Medicare the chance to decide for themselves which health plan to use, rather than leave that decision to government bureaucrats. Such proposals are the kind of health care reform that Republicans stand for: market-oriented, patient-centered, and result-driven.

Obama To Address The Peasants Tonight

After a month of so-called listening Obama and the Democrat controlled Congress has come to the same conclusion they had before the recess; the peasant class of this country (you know the everyday, hard working men and women) simply are too stupid to understand the healthcare plan. So this time our great leader Obama will address us lowly peasants from in front of the majestic Congress.

The imagery should be breath-taking. His words will wash clean our poor ignorant minds and as we see Pelosi jump to her feet to applaud him we will all undoubtedly and uncontrollably jump to our feet in mind-numbed acceptance to the brilliance of Obama; or they could just show how out-of-touch with the Nation they truly are and continue to suffer declining poll numbers and a severe backlash at the ballot box in 2010.

Continue to underestimate us peasants and you may just be joining the unemployed. Americans have never and will never bowed before a king or a dictator; you serve at our pleasure and you have forgotten that.

Rep. Cantor Release

Cantor Remarks at GOP Stakeout
September 9, 2009
Contact:Brad Dayspring

“Good morning, our members are back in town after having been at home with the people they represent over the month of August. I think it’s very clear that the members of the Republican Conference feel strongly that the public has awakened, that the wind is at our back, primarily because of the fierce debate over the president’s healthcare plan. Tonight we are going to see the president address the nation in a joint session, and clearly the hurdle is very high for President Obama.

His task is going to be to convince the American people that the proposal of a government option doesn’t mean a government replacement of the healthcare system as we know it. Secondly, the test will include his being able to convince members, as well as the public, that an expanded government role will save the taxpayers money. Because I think intuitively that most Americans believe that more government in health care means more rationing and more forced discrimination on the basis of gender and age.

What it really is, I think for us as Republicans in the House, is an opportunity for us to see our president willing to start focus on areas we agree on and not just focus the areas that divide us. We all understand, we can rally around solutions having to do with preexisting conditions. We can do things about making sure that if somebody loses their job they don’t necessarily lose their health care, instead of trying to insist that government competition is all we should be about. We are also hoping that a premium is put on getting it right, not just getting it done now, I think that does reflect where the American people are as well.”

American Life League Press Release


09 September 2009
CONTACT: Katie Walker


Washington, DC (09 September 2009) – As Obama prepares to address the nation Wednesday on his health care plan, American Life League challenged the nation's Catholic bishops to be prepared to shut down Catholic health care and make it clear that they prefer this action to compromising with the intrinsic evils currently contained in various Obama care proposals.

"Obama speaks tonight. Christ speaks always. When it comes to health care reform which road will our Catholic bishops take?" the group asked in a Washington Times ad.

The ad highlighted six principled positions Catholic-supported health care must include: opposition to abortion, contraception, sterilization, human embryonic stem cell therapy, euthanasia and assisted suicide.

Judie Brown, president of American Life League, the country's largest grassroots Catholic pro-life organization, said the ad addressed a critical question from the nation's lay Catholic faithful: Why are the bishops largely remaining silent in opposition to the deadly provisions contained in Obamacare proposals?

"The president has laid before us a government mandate to subsidize a culture of death and impose it on Catholic health care," Brown said. "We desperately need our bishops to lead the fight against this plan so diametrically opposed to the Faith - yet their silence speaks their approval."

The ad quotes Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger (now Pope Benedict XVI) who in 1997 said:

“The words of the Bible and of the Church fathers rang in my ears, those sharp condemnations of shepherds who are like mute dogs; in order to avoid conflicts, they let the poison spread. Peace is not the first civic duty, and a bishop whose only concern is not to have any problems and to gloss over as many conflicts as possible is an image I find repulsive.”

"For the American bishops, the choice is simple," Brown said. "Embrace Obamacare and sell the soul of the Church to government bureaucrats and politicians or embrace the Faith and be prepared to shut down Catholic health care rather than participate in intrinsic evil. We ask the bishops to unite behind Christ and His teachings now while there is still time to have a positive effect on the road ahead."

American Life League was cofounded in 1979 by Judie Brown. It is the largest grassroots Catholic pro-life organization in the United States and is committed to the protection of all innocent human beings from the moment of creation to natural death.

Peter Schiff Update And Money Bomb Information

A money bomb for Peter Schiff is starting at midnight tonight and running all through tomorrow. Schiff has been kind enough to commit to running if we can raise 1.5 million total. He has already raised almost a million of that. If he doesn't reach this amount it does not mean he is not running; it's just a goal that would guarantee he would run. Also, if schiff were to decide to not run, which I think is highly unlikely. All donations would be returned. Here is the information on the money bomb.

A moneybomb event to support Peter Schiff
Wed, Sep 09, 2009

Grassroots supporters of Peter Schiff have organized a moneybomb to take place on Wednesday, September 9th, 2009. The event has an official website set up at The stated goal of the effort is to continue to raise money towards the goal of $1.5 million dollars.

Donations to the cause are to be made ONLY at the Official Peter Schiff website at

Schiff touched on inflation and gold quite a bit today. Here is an article with him discussing the subject and he also covered it in this video blog today:

The dollar breaking down, gold breaking out

Schiff is one of those candidates that a lot of us have been hoping for. Let's not waste the opportunity. Let's get behind him early. I understand that a lot of people are hurting right now, heck my own family is, so if you cannot donate please consider volunteering. You can pass his video blogs along to friends and family and if you have a blog you can help get his message out. Word of mouth is still an incredibly effective tool and all support has value.

Update from the House Republican Study Committee (RSC)

RSC Update: Tuesday, September 8, 2009

From the Chairman
Members of Congress return to Washington today, bringing with them a message from the American people who’ve made it clear that they aren’t interested in the proposals put forth by President Obama and Democrats in Congress.

On Wednesday, the President will address a Joint Session of Congress to inform the nation how health care reform should take shape. The timing is interesting considering this debate has gone on for several months now. While his opinions and preferences should spur much commentary from the media, the President can’t change the fact that the Democrats’ proposals are fatally flawed.

If President Obama has learned anything from the last five weeks, he’ll take this opportunity to let Americans know he’s finally ready to listen to their concerns. Or, he can continue to travel down the path of expanding the federal government’s reach into our lives.

We all realize the status quo is not acceptable, but it’s vital that we find the right solution – not just any solution. The plans that have been considered by Congress thus far are definitely not the right ones. We have to keep what works and fix what’s broken in the system to ensure that every American has access to quality, affordable care. H.R. 3400, the Empowering Patients First Act, is just what the doctor ordered.

Congressman Tom Price
Chairman, Republican Study Committee

RSC Media Activity

RSC Communications Activity
The RSC continues to fight back against the Democrats’ attempts to spin the facts.

· Just like everything else the Obama administration touches, the cost of the President’s CIA witch hunt will be borne by future generations.

· At the end of July, President Obama promised that Members of Congress could visit the White House to go over the proposals for health care reform “line by line” with him. At least six House Republicans contacted the President to formally accept this invitation. So far, there’s been no indication from the White House that the President intends to keep his word.

Pro-Life Advocates to Pray at White House for 27 Hours Against Abortion Funding

Hamas 'Tora Bora' found in Judean hills

Israeli security officials cleared for publication on Monday the recent discovery of a large cave complex in the Judean hill country that had been used by Hamas and other terror groups for training.

The Judean hills are full of similar networks of caves that for centuries dating back to the Roman occupation of Israel served as homes for refugees and the more outcast sectors of society. Because of the abundance of such caves, their use by criminal or terrorist elements is difficult to detect and prevent.

Van Jones Resigns

This is a victory for Glenn Beck and all those who love our Republic, but let's be honest it is an extremely small victory. Our government is still full of extremists and socialists, many of which were elected by the people. Let's celebrate the victory, but continue to move forward.
